I'll have to check out her cover of Weird Fishes.The Loft just played Can't Fight, the third single from Lianne La Havas' third CD, which is cleverly titled Lianne La Havas and isn't even out yet. It will be released July 17. It also includes a remake of Radiohead’s Weird Fishes. La Havas, born Lianne Charlotte Barnes in London, sang background vocals for Paloma Faith before signing with Warner Bros. in 2010. Two of La Havas' singles, Lost & Found and What You Won't Do, reached the top 20 of Billboard's adult R&B chart. Can't Fight looks to be her biggest hit yet:
I heard this last halloween (I think), XMU was doing a day of covers (get it? Bands dressing up as other bands), and this one stood out as being really cool. Good pick!Heard this for the first time on my way into work today.
I've heard Bird And Bee do other covers and I think they're kinda fun but also kinda kitschy. This one falls in that category too, but I thought that the Devil guitar riff on piano sounded really interesting. I was intrigued and kinda enjoyed it, in the same way when Ben Folds or Reel Big Fish do covers, they are intentionally odd but fun.
